sorry about the links. i know i have the right setup for cpu cooling but what i want to know is if i have enough power/cooling for future upgrades such as 2 gpu's, nb, and sb as in the second pic..

it will be setup as in the first and third pic. the third pic has exactly what im goin for except with one more gpu block. any suggestions accepted. thanks in advance.

it should handle that, but look around the 480 version of that rad if you can afford it.

its also cheaper to buy at www.petrastechshop.com
(where i would recommend you buy the fuzion v2 instead of the EK, to decrease restriction in your loop, it also performs better)

yes i forgot to change that. i was wonderin if to get the xspc edge or the fuzion v2. the edge has least restriction but no acetal version yet, so maybe i should just get the v2.

the difference between the XSPC and the Fuzion isnt as big as between the fuzion and the Supreme. so if you really want an acetal block fuzion is the way to go. whats wrong with acrylic though? AFAIK it doesnt crack as much these days. never really hear anything about it.

well after reading reviews i kept hearing about the acrylic cracking. i prefer the look of the acryl so maybe i should just do all my waterblocks that way if you recommend it.

just dont smash it around, and you should be OK, and dont clean it will alcohol, i heard acrylic doesnt like that.
i wont recommend either, both have their pros and cons, but i'd say you can trust both.
im surprised nobody else came in here to share their opinions...
TBH, theres a large chance i'll go for the XSPC myself.

Why are you buying a pump top and then a pump with a top on it? Just get the 18W DDC..18W DDC..Then get a top for it...I don't like plastic either, I'd go for Delrin or all metal, not that you can get brass tops for the DDC yet....

These are the stores I use a lot for cooling gear...

I'll leave you a couple of things to read and my cleaning and set-up PDF..There is a lot of good info here in the stickies also if you haveen't already read them..
